You can book it. If you own a home, every 15-20 years you will replace a roof and you will replace a central air unit. We did the roof 5 or 6 years ago. Now it’s the 17 year old AC’s turn.

After 17 years, the old unit cashed it in.  And now, so will I to replace her!

THe issue started Sunday morning. The air handling unit inside wouldn’t run, the compressor unit outside wouldn’t quit running. I shut both of them down till the repairman could arrive. And so he did, this afternoon. Guess what?

The inside air handling unit kicked right on. The compressor unit outside wouldn’t run.

The verdict? AC Guilty. But no sin for which a brand new unit wouldn’t absolve. Such are the +$4000 every 15-20 years joys of homeownership.

Silver lining: Gratefully, the AC gave up in January rather than July.
